Crist campaign, committee: We raised $2.2m in April, more than Rick Scott (sort of)


Democrat Charlie Crist's campaign and political committee are bragging about what once seemed almost impossible: Outraising power-house fundraising Gov. Rick Scott.

"We raised $2.2 million in April -- our campaign and committee has once again out-raised Rick Scott -- and as of today, we've raised $10.24 million since November," Crist said in an email.

Scott's campaign and committee raised about $1.3 million.

But Scott's crew added one more variable: The Republican Party of Florida, which Scott also fundraises for (and which can get cheaper ad rates than his political committee). RPOF reported $1.72 million (note: last week, Scott's campaign said it was $1.4m, which could be the amount he raised).

So that brings Scott's total raised to $2.7 million to $3 milllion, and Crist's to $2.2m +.......?
